This week on 40plusandalliswell


It's the Queen's ninetieth birthday this weekend and I have been thinking about what party foods would have been around in the 1920s when the Queen was born. Waldorf salad was first presented at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1893 and was popular for Great Gatsby parties in the 1920s.
Why not try my vegan version as part of your celebrations this weekend?

Last week Becky and I looked at some natural beauty products that were used in the early part of the 20th century when the Queen was born. In that first post we looked at skincare and Becky could not resist trying out one of these vintage natural beauty products.
Find out how she went on in this blog post on my 'sister' blog-

So many 'healthy' recipes claim to be sugar free. However, when you look at many of them more closely, they turn out to be free from sucrose- that is, everyday table/cane sugar- but contain other simple sugars. 
On my 'sister' blog we look at some 'sugar free' alternatives to cane sugar to see just how healthy (or not) they are- http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/the-real-meaning-of-sugar-free.html
